This show is one for the books. We strive to bring the listeners useful information that effects Veterans in the Claims areas as well as benefits. If we cannot answer the question we will find someone who can. 

If you didn't get a chance to listen to this one, Listen on the archives. I guarantee you will learn something.

IF Your interested in the Mortgage Life Insurance for veterans you may want to tune into this show   they had Bill Creager on (Ex VA Employee as a Senior Rater and a Head DRO.)

He explains this new mortgage  life Insurance plan for Veterans and also other questions such as what does the wedges of war mean?

Also if your having problems with continuity of symptoms with your claim he explains that too.

How to substantiate your claim with your lay statement, basically how to use buddy statements and the language needed.

How to apply your claim if you  have been classified as special operations and have problems retaining your medical records or in-service records because you were classified as secret intelligence How to be declassified  ect,,,ect,,,,  

This was a interesting show with a lot of good advance information Ms Berta came on and ask some good questions along with James Cripps & Ms Tbird

I learn something about the wedges of war, Bill goes into that very well and it is interesting to hear what he  (Bill Creager) had to say about that and other topics as well.

Dr C Bash had some questions for Bill also.

I wish all the podcast shows were like this one last night.

      Hi, new to the forum and thank you in advance if you can provide any insight.  
      I talked to the VA today because I was confused about my claim, they approved part of my claim and deferred the other half of it. I searched a lot of post here and being deferred is normal for the va, but what confused me was why they deferred it. The reason they deferred my TBI was because they wanted a IMO (independent medical opinion) and also flagged my TBI and major depression for higher evaluation and entitlement. I had a C&P for both of these months ago, plus many pages from C file and from tricare to support my claim.  
          
      My questions are:  
      -  I though you had to appeal to have your case reviewed by the higher level evaluation. I submitted the claim, evidence, and C&P and they moved it to higher evaluation on their own.  
      -They also requested their own IMO following the C&P for TBI, is this bad or normal?
       
      The VA rep told me that the 0% rating is a place holder stating that it is service connected while it is undergoing higher evaluation and not to worry, but all I can do is worry.

      After Denials for OSA both direct and secondary to PTSD, this spring I decided to spend the money on a IMO and do the claim right.  I contacted Dr. Anaise and was told to send all my records, decision letters and $1500.  
      After about a week I was emailed with a final IMO report that was around 40-50 pages.  It was excellent & well researched. Within 6 weeks of submitting the IMO with a supplemental claim OSA secondary to PTSD was approved.
      Yes IMO's dont guarantee anything and they can be expensive but they are definitely worth it when you have been denied already and have nothing else to submit and someone like Dr. Anaise will always outweight the NP the VA usually has doing exams.

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
